Storyboard Text

  • Help us King Sisyphus!
  • Help us King Sisyphus!
  • Zeus took her that way.
  • If you make my people a source of fresh water, I will tell you where your daughter went.
  • Fine, here's a stream. Now tell me where she is!
  • In the city-state of Corinth, there was a horrible freshwater problem. All the citizens turned to their clever ruler, King Sisyphus. 
  • I hereby BANISH you to the UNDERWORLD!
  • I will do as you  say, loving husband.
  • Psst! Don't put a coin under my tongue.
  • King Sisyphus spotted Zeus, the king of gods, with Asophus' (the river god) daughter as they flew by.
  • Where is your coin?   How will you pay for your crossing of the river Styx?
  • Go teach your wife some manners!
  • Sorry, sir, but my wife  was too cheap to give me a gold coin.
  • Then, right after him,  came a worried Asophus.  He made a deal with Sisyphus. Sisyphus would tell him where his daughter went and he would give him a source of fresh water.
  • Zeus found out and became infuriated. He demanded to have him thrown into the underworld. But Sisyphus had a clever idea up his sleeve.
  • Hades wouldn't let  Sisyphus pass without his gold  coin, and demanded he go back to his wife and teach her some respect.
  • King Sisyphus went home to his wife, and they had a good laugh about how he outsmarted Zeus himself and solved the fresh water problem.
